-----------------(White flag held high)----------------Esteemed gentlemen and ladies, good people of Britain,acknowledged motherland of my beloved country:As a member of the American branches of the Byron and Keats-Shelley organizations, and findingshelter with the generous and kindly inhabitants ofthe GMS community of Fooldom, I was disturbed byrumors and rumors of rumors that reached my eyesregarding a potential invasion. I had thought andhoped that the political differences between ourrespective countries which threaded back to long yearspast, had been set aside in documented alliedfriendship. Having correspondants in Great Britaintoward whom I harbor affection, having a portion ofwhat is left of my mind roaming hills and vales inEngland's varied counties and villages, your plannedaggression seemed severely misplaced -- true error. Later Ihad heard that your honored General mhowel had touredthe GMS community dispensing "luvvies" here and there-- and I was heartened. I learned of conditions withinyour camp and thought -- oh so FOOLishly! -- that in agesture of goodwill and diplomacy, I would ventureforth bearing gifts for your tea-time restoration.Thus it was, I baked biscuits, and shortbread, andscones -- and even managed crumpets. I procuredlemon curd and orange marmalade and clotted cream toensure a memorable tea...Alas, I discovered thedistributed "luvvies" were apparently a motive ofstrategy. (Sigh) I am disappointed, yes, heartfully disappointed! So injured is this lady, thatshe gave the shortbread to the dogs, the clotted creamto stray cats, crumbled the biscuits and scones forthe birds, spread out curd and marmalade for bees andants, and dined upon the crumpets herself. Yourshort-term thinking has resulted in loss. Pleaseconsider thy ways...This is an unofficial visit, andI thank you for permitting me to speak. - MizBlue (Disappearing in a fog of words)
